Dean - University College at Johnson C. Smith University

“I first contacted Mr. McNair to serve as guest speaker at an alumni celebration event. He was gracious enough to accept the invitation despite the late timing. When Carl spoke to the audience, his genuine personality and down-to-earth story-telling resonated with the group. Over the following decade we invited him back to campus and to other regional events numerable times with the same success. Folks really connect to him as a person and to the life lessons embedded in the historic accounts that he shares.”

“I was given the distinct pleasure of experiencing Carl McNair's exciting presentation at the 2013 African American History Month event at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He shared a wealth of information about the life and legacy of his brother Ronald McNair, along with so many amazing facts about African American men and women who share the distinguished title of NASA astronaut. His interactive presentation style was very personable and engaging and the audience was so impressed. I am still receiving very positive feedback from attendees. I highly recommend Carl McNair as a speaker, educator, and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) expert.”
